holiest days in the sports world. oh without a doubt. nice way to start with uni at iowa state. we'll preview the cyclones defense. and we'll talk iowa in the sunday night spotlight. stay with your 24 hour news
10:20 pm
10:21 pm
10:22 pm
cyclones hope to slow down those teams with a new defensive scheme. ... they're switching from a 3-4 defense to ei pieces, including big 12 defensive newcomer of the year demond tucker at the line and safety kamari cotton-moya. so far, the transition seems to be going well. "love it. the coaches came in with a lot of energy. from the first day they came in, they set a set of goals for us and we've lived up to them so far... it's really not about the personnel. the coaches are watching film and trying to put the best guys in the best position to make the
10:23 pm
about coming in is the safety position. my only reasoning for that is kamari, his health obviously at times a year ago. and then, who's the other safety? i want to give us as much position flexibility as we possibly can. you have to cover guys in this conference." trt: 47 oc: "in this conference" ... and i'm joined right now by marc morehouse from the gazette here to talk iowa football. the season opener is on saturday versus miami of ohio at kinnick stadium, kickoff is at 2:30. marc, iowa is a 27.5 point favorite in this game. what does iowa have to do if they even want to get close to that many points? "beathard has a nice day, gets off the field in one piece. c.j. beathard, as
10:24 pm
out about running back and finding out about wide receiver. i think jay scheel's going to be asked to really have his profile bloom. last year he played three snaps. this year, he's set to start. it'll be fun to see new faces. new faces who are expected to do stuff. matt nelson from cedar rapids xavier is one of them at left defensive end, so his profile is going to bloom." one thing that stood out in the quarterback position. there's an "or" there with tyler wiegers or nathan stanley the true freshman from wisconsin. what do we read into this? "that he's good. stanley's a good ball player. i've only seen him at kids day, and that arm was beatheard- esque. he looked a little clunky going under center; he ran the wing-t in high school. you can look at it two ways. one, trying to get tyler wiegers motivated; a third year
10:25 pm
in the game where he needs to see it. or, they have a phenomenal player in nathan stanley, a potential guy who could take over. so i think they're right on the edge. i think if beathard misses time, real time, you're probably looking at a true freshman quarterback for iowa." this is what i really wanted to talk about. the news came out earlier this week that chris doyle, iowa's strength and conditioning coach, became the highest paid strength and condition co 600,000 a year. that created a lot of stir nationally. guys like desmond howard and jay bilas all chimed in. i'll never understand why when the national guys talk iowa it always irks them and why they don't do their homework on these things. you've been around the program a long time. it seems that people forget what he's done with what he gets and what he turns a player into. "iowa can make players. kirk ferentz calls his program developmental, proudly. and a lot of that is
10:26 pm
the argument, throw that out the window. that's stupid. i like desmond howard, i think he's good for espn. but what he says here, iowa falling short in the big ten championship game against michigan state, 22-play drive, that goes on doyle. no. that's just a small snapshot. iowa's a dot in the map without a stellar strength and conditioning program. kirk ferentz realized that early in his career." once again, miami of ohio at iowa on saturday. marc, are you ready? "let's do it man. i've been long time." i've been ready for a few weeks too... we'll be right
